A record states that Hannah Sanderson was born on Aug. 11th, 1786 at Hinderwell in Yorkshire, England. The Danby-in-Cleveland Parish records give a baptism date of Sept. 28th, 1786.

Strong candidates for her parents are John Sanderson and Ann Coverdale. This couple was married on Dec. 5th, 1785. There are other possibilities, however.

Hannah married John Agar on June 8th, 1806 in Danby-in-Cleveland, Yorkshire. This family moved to Canada in 1830.

The Sanderson was passed down as a middle name in the related Scaman family.

From the Will of John Agar the Elder:

"...First. I hearby constitute my wife Hannah Agar to be my sole Executrix of this my last Will and Testament, directing my said Executrix to pay all my just debts and funeral expences and the legacies herein after given, out of my Estate..."
